GREAT COURSE. GREENS SLOWER THAN NORMAL

All in our group agreed, the greens were as slow as we had seen at Panther. Greens stimped about 8. Other than that the course was in really good shape.

Nice Day at oCn

We had a nice day at OCN Panther Lake. Course was in good condition but the greens were a little on the slow side and a bit bumpy.

Nice course

Well worth a visit , as varied and well laid out holes.
Golf course condition was quite good especially well presented fairways.
We were a two ball so held up quite a bit especially on back 9.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Hope to play there again if I can get a reasonable green fee.

Legit track

Tee to green, really nice, challenging track. Only complaint was the 5-some in front of us (a 2-some) and the 4-some in front of them holding THEM up. I saw a ranger 2 or 3 times, but nothing said or done. Maybe just not possible. The course was stacked up “like firewood” according to the starter. We were ready early tho, so I sure wouldn’t have minded if he had moved us up in the order…I’m still giving 5-stars b/c the course and staff were great at everything I am guaranteed to know and hold them accountable to. It’s really hard to speed up slow golfers…and it’s Orlando, so maybe both old and slow. We still got in 15 holes starting at 2:42p until about 6:30p, so not criminally slow I guess…

Great par 5s and challenging 3s

Unfortunately the range was closed as demo day had happened the day before.
Bar facilities fine but nothing special
Public toilet facilities in serious need of a refurb

The actual course however was excellent - v decent challenge , but playable - excellent guide for which tees to play off based on your yardage off the tee.
Greens were true and fast - be nice if a few more golfers learnt how to use a pitchmark repairer here !
Pace of play was superb : 3.5 hours though I fear this is the exception as we were allowed to go off a little earlier than our booked tee time by the lovely starter. That was before the wall of 4 balls turned up.

All in all an excellent golfing experience, with the rest of it a little tired !

Frost Delay

There was an hour frost delay and because our tee time was at 1:48 pm we were only able to get 9 holes in. Thank you golf now for issuing a partial refund!
